Arthur, I set up two fields and two buttons. In the first field I put a
bunch of text (multiple lines).

The script of btn 1 was:

on mouseUp
  send "doIt" && fld 1 to btn 2
end mouseUp

The script of btn 2 was:

on DoIt pWhat
  put pWhat into fld 2
end DoIt

I then clicked button 1 and my text appeared in fld 2, multiple lines and
all. Perhaps it's something else?
